  1. Direct Performance Evaluation of Additive Manufacturing Process Plans

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: None

    Additive manufacturing is steadily advancing towards fulfilling its promise of customized and on-demand production of functional parts. However, performance of as-manufactured parts can differ significantly from the as-designed parts because the as-manufactured geometry differs from the as-designed geometry and the asmanufactured material properties are not known. Attempts to predict performance o ...

  2. Nanomachine Device for Semiconductor Process Control Monitoring

    SBC: Xallent LLC            Topic: None

    Conventional characterization and test methods are increasingly ineffective when applied to structures less than 100 nanometers, causing challenges across R&D, process control and failure analysis. An increasing number of subtle defects become prominent drivers of failure as device size and operating margins decrease, e.g., processing anomalies in thin gate oxides, substrate problems related to do ...

  3. Developing Silicon Nanowire Sensors to Measuring Host-Cell Proteins at a Biomanufacturing Line

    SBC: Advanced Silicon Group            Topic: None

    Our biosensor is made of silicon nanowire arrays functionalized with antibodies to measure the concentration of specific proteins. In this grant we will take a sensor that has been demonstrated for use in measuring a set of generic host cell proteins and we will apply the sensor to measure a set of proteins for a specific cell line. In doing so, we will demonstrate the utility of our sensor to be ...

  4. Interference Detection and Analysis Device

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: HSB0181003

    Law enforcement and public safety agencies rely on the 700 MHz/800 MHz spectrum band which are affected by co-channel interference from the commercial radio networks along with unintentional as well as intentional radio frequency interferers (RFIs). The first responders need to be alerted or have prior knowledge of potential interferences at a mission site. This will enable them to adopt strategie ...

  5. Firmware Automated Analysis at Scale with Testing

    SBC: Red Balloon Security, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181008

    The firmware running on mobile, embedded, and Internet of things devices is often treated as a blackbox by organizations. These firmware images can contain a myriad of n-day vulnerabilities, both malicious and unintentional backdoors, and other unwanted functionality. Unfortunately, analyzing these firmware images is a difficult and time-consuming task as each firmware can be packed with layers of ...

  6. Improved Human Systems for Computed TomographySpeed of Image Review

    SBC: IDSS Holdings, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181006

    IDSS in partnership with Tufts University Human Factors Engineering Program, a leader in Engineering Phycology, proposes to study CT screening system operator burden and reduce image review time by reviewing the GUI and the current man-machine interaction, perform a cognitive and behavioral analysis of the interaction, perform a time an motion study and recommend and perform limited prototyping of ...

  8. Rapid Tox-Based Wearable Sensing Badge for Solid Aerosol and Contact Exposure to Fentanyls

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181001

    Nano Terra proposes to develop a low-cost and wearable detector badge that quickly and selec-tively alerts the user to the presence of solid fentanyl aerosols with an audible and visual alert. Current commercial fentanyl and opioid detectors are bulky and costly and have unsuitably-high limits of detection. Nano Terra will leverage their expertise in ultra-sensitive dosimetric detection of threat ...

  9. PCS-Enabled Unattended Radiation Detection and Attribution System

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: HSB0171009

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a PCS-Enabled Unattended Radiation Detection and Attribution System (PURDAS) that will be able to detect, identify, and attribute radiological sources to specific source carriers or conveyances. The PURDAS will include a COTS gamma and neutron detection capability as well as a visible camera, onboard processing, and wireless radios. PURDAS units wil ...

  10. Continuous Learning for Additive Manufacturing Processes Through Advanced Data Analytics

    SBC: Senvol LLC            Topic: NA

    Additive manufacturing (AM) is a promising manufacturing technique for end-use parts that can solve challenges for American manufacturers in many industries, e.g. aerospace, defense, automotive, energy, and healthcare. However, despite the potential that AM offers, the rate of AM adoption in industry is very slow. This is because AM suffers from low repeatability and quality consistency issues, wh ...
